Sabit na!!! Sabit Mountaineer Year 6

SABIT takes the road to 2020!

In cooperation with Haribon Foundation and The Caliraya-Lumot Watershed reservation (CLW), SABIT Mountaineers will help in the goal of restoring 1 million hectares of our rainforests using native tree species by year 2020. 

For our 6th anniversary, we will plant native tree species in order to recover and conserve biodiversity. Meaning, we will not just fill the earth, we will help build healthy forest with rich populations of animals and plants, stable abundant water supply, and protection from natural disasters.

All participants are encouraged to donate and plant at least one seedling. Cost is Php 100.00, inclusive of the seedling, land preparation and maintenance.

CLW was proclaimed as a reservation under Proclamation 573 (Parcel No. 9) covering an area of 10,770 hectares with special uses as reservoir for power generation in Luzon. Due to varying conflicting uses such as: agriculture production, ecotourism, recreation, real estate, resorts and rest houses, among others, the watershed is now at the state of degradation and over-exploitation.
